The Art of Cool is a non-profit organization in Durham, NC promoting and educating the public on Jazz and other forms of alternative music.  When I say alternative I’m speaking of everything that’s not on the radio.  It’s time to expand your music horizons and Art of Cool is here to help you do that.  This year the organization launched two signature programs.  The Art of Cool Festival hosted this past April was a two day music event featuring various renowned Jazz and alternative soul artists.  The Jazz education program for 3rd and 7th graders, StArt of Cool took place in June.  Art of Cool is engaging audiences in Durham, Atlanta, New York and beyond.   Co-Founder, Cicely Mitchell talks with us about the birth of Art of Cool and where she sees her brain child going in the future.
